Bucs vs. Redskins Spread Prediction

Tampa Bay Bucs vs. Washington Redskins, 11/11/18 Predictions & Odds

With the defending Super Bowl champs perhaps ready to wake up in the second half, the Washington Redskins can’t afford to slip up on the road Sunday versus a struggling Tampa Bay Bucs team at 1:00 p.m. ET. Will the Redskins pull off a small upset today?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Bucs are 3-point favorites to beat the Redskins. The total, meanwhile, sits at 50.5 points. As of this writing, 54% of the public betting tickets are on the Bucs to cover the point spread.

Washington Redskins

Redskins RT Morgan Moses (concussion) is questionable for Week 10 against the Buccaneers. Washington was already planning to be without starting guards Brandon Scherff (torn pec, injured reserve) and Shawn Lauvao (torn ACL, injured reserve), as well as starting LT Trent Williams (thumb surgery). Moses' pending absence would leave the Redskins short four starting linemen. Geron Christian Sr. will reportedly fill in at right tackle if Moses can’t go.

Tampa Bay Bucs

Mike Evans (knee) wasn't listed on the Buccaneers' final injury report for Week 10 against the Redskins. The Bucs removed him from the injury report after he was upgraded to full participation at Friday's practice. Going against a Redskins secondary that was just torched by Julio Jones, Evans will be a rock-solid WR1 when he takes the field in Week 10.

NFL Betting Trends

Washington

The Redskins are 1-4-2 against the spread in their last seven games versus the Bucs. That said, the road team and the underdog is 4-0-1 ATS in the last five meetings between these two teams, respectively.

Tampa Bay

The Bucs are 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall and are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games against conference foes.

Prediction

Plenty of recreational bettors will look at this line and take the underdog that’s the better team, which is Washington. And perhaps the Redskins will circle the wagons following their loss to the Falcons last week but I’m fading Washington today for two key reasons. For starters, Atlanta dominated the Redskins last week in D.C., holding Adrian Peterson to just 17 rushing yards and exposing Washington as a one-dimensional team. The key reason I’ll be fading the Redskins, however, is cluster injuries along the offensive line. Moses is questionable, Brandon Scherff and Shawn Lauvao are out of the year, as is left tackle Trent Williams. Atlanta doesn’t have a great pass rush and the Falcons looked like those Giants teams that beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl, so while the Bucs own one of the worst defenses in the league, I’m laying the points against a Washington team that could be ready for a freefall.
